I found this article on voz de galicia's site that a new hostel has opened in Viveiro this july, Oli Vita Hostel: https://www.lavozdegalicia.es/noticia/amarina/viveiro/2019/07/14/oli-vita-hostel-abre-viveiro-servir-segunda-casa-viajero/0003_201907X14C4991.htm. this is very good news for pilgrims, though I suspect reservations will be necessary.

albergue O Abeiro de Manon must be close to the 'official' ruta do mar which cuts inland from celeiro to viveiro. the building looks magnificent. their website: http://albergueoabeiro.com/.

there was/is another albergue on río Mera, Hostel Río Mera, less then km from the FEVE train station: https://albergue-rio-mera-es.book.direct/en-gb. but! the google says it's permanently closed and when I tried to book on their site, it informed me that they are not excepting reservations. that would be a perfect location for the day via san Andrés de Teixido to Cedeira. perhaps someone looking to open an (pilgrim) albergue should look into that? the infrastructure is all there already..

The albergue in Viveiro looks good, not far from where we stayed up by the FEVE station.
I am not sure that the other two are best placed for the camino route although the O Abeiro de Manon might be (this is the section we could not manage to walk).
The Rio Mera albergue looks to be well off the route as you actually walk through O Ponte de Mera, but I may be wrong as it depends on the route taken from Ortegueira. It would make for a long day as it is 15kms (12kms uphill!) from O Ponte de Mera to San Andrés and 11kms more to Cedeira. Google maps gives approx a further 5kms from Mera de Arriba to O Ponte de Mera.
An albergue in San Andres would be good.......

Are you hoping to walk this Camino - if so it would be great to have a report on what you find re accommodation and these albergues

I think that any more budget friendly accommodation on ruta do mar is welcome at the moment. even if it needs a detour, this is all managable with a bit of advance planning.
for the rio mera albergue (if it's open!) you could take the train to the next stop and in the morning take the train back to ponte de mera.

ruta do mar has been added to my ever growing list of caminos. but unless I win a lottery, my next long-distance camino will not happen in another three or four years. (if I'm lucky, it may be this very ambitious plan I'm working on at the moment, crossing northern spain from east to west via various caminos and endulging in all kind of romanesque :))
